History and exotic Morocco - Jul 29 - Aug 4, 2019
My husband and I were celebrating several special occasions this year, one being our 25th wedding anniversary and so we decided to do something wonderful to celebrate. That’s how we thought of adding a trip to Morocco to our OS holiday. We are so pleased we did as it was an amazing experience!
Brahim went out of his way to produce a comprehensive travel package, suited to our budget and including as many local sites as possible in the allotted time. Adnane, our driver collected us from our Riad in Tanger on time and spoke perfect English so we were instantly relieved and reassured about the trip ahead. We first went to Chefchaouen which was several hours away but as the scenery changed with the climb up the mountains and Adnane provided many interesting commentary the time flew. This turned out to be how the rest of our trip would go as Adnane would not only assure our safe arrival at each destination he also endeavoured to educate, entertain and attend to our comfort/needs at all times. Our guide in Chefchaouen, Abdul, was a local gentleman who walked us through the old Médina pointing out interesting buildings or facts, so we passed a very relaxing and enjoyable afternoon in Chefchaouen. The following day we went to Fes but stopped first at the ancient Roman ruins of Volubilis. Our guide in Fes, Hafid greeted us and showed us the restaurant he had suggested for us to enjoy dinner that evening. It was perfect!
Our tour of the Médina the following day was an extraordinary experience. It would have been impossible to navigate the labyrinthine corridors without the help of Hafid who not only knew his way around but also every second stall owner, or so it seemed!
From Fes we went to Rabat, the capital of Morocco, then the following day to Casablanca and finally Marrakesh. We saw the third largest mosque in the world at Casablanca, the amazing Hussein II and then also what looked to be the worlds largest outdoor swimming pool we’d ever seen!
This was truly an amazing trip and one filled with fantastic memories and we must thank Brahim and Adnane for making it happen for us.
